A wonderful Time Capsule
20 July 2009 | by b-lavingtonmartinSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this film in HD at the BFI in London last night and the experience was completely spell binding! Being too young to have witnessed the events 40 years ago first hand I have always had a sense of having missed out on a momentous occasion and wondered if I would ever see a comparative event in my life time, having seen this wonderful film last night I have now had the closest thing to an experience of having actually been there at the time of the Apollo 11 mission, the pacing of the film is perfect, the imagery sublime, most sequences are magnificent due the the stunning use of archive footage, though seen many times in subsequent films, here seems fresh and new and full of wonder. I left the cinema as though waking from a dream, this film is profoundly affecting even 40 years on, a true time capsule intended for us the audience of the future to revel in awe at the achievements of the few, for the many and the realisation of this magnificent dream. The restoration is flawless, the film truly sparkles with vivid charm and an overwhelming respect for the source material. Director Theo Kamecke has achieved breathtaking feat in my humble opinion.........

........thanks for the memories.
